Spain to win it?

Spain sacked head coach Julen Lopetegui after he was named the new Real Madrid boss - two days before their opening World Cup match against Portugal.

Real Madrid announced on Tuesday that Lopetegui would succeed Zinedine Zidane at the Bernabeu on a three-year-deal.

The Spanish football federation (RFEF) said it had dismissed the 51-year-old because the negotiation occurred "without any information to the RFEF".

The World Cup in Russia starts on Thursday.

It did look like a really poor decision to announce the Real Madrid job this side of the WC finals...

I imagine it made the team-talks with the Barcelona players a little, erm, awkward to say the least...

Cheers,

Itsallaguess

It's just been anounced that the 2026 World Cup will be jointly hosted by the USA, Canada and Mexico.

I'm sure they made that bid before Trump got into office......

What a Joke.............2026 venue...its Mexico..............................well some of it..................
Its Canada............................well some of it......................

Actually its USA......................most of it..........

Wonder if the Mexican Wall will have been built by then plus crippling trade wars with Canada at the same time....or will Trump do what only Putin can do and that is to elect himself for a third time to see it all through and have the finals at Mar A Lago with North Korea qualifying and Kim Jong-un in goal for their team.

Morocco didn't stand a chance. Think US offered 11 billion to FiFa. Mind you with 48 teams allowed I think, will be quite a spectacle.

First things first....we kick off in Russia tomorrow.....

p.s. The so called disgraced ex president. Sepp Blatter, is a personal guest of Mr. Putin. (wonder why?)

A self-professed "bell end" has draped a huge flag across the front of his house to cheer on England in the World Cup.

Personally, I think it's just asking for a drone strike.

Why do they have these tournaments in the cricket season? Leslie Compton would never have stood for it.

Russia 5-0 Saudi Arabia.

Great result for the hosts but I hear the Saudi keeper has been axed.

Portugal score. The Spanish are going to have to have some kind of inquisition after that one.
